Project: Queensland Rail Train Doors

Queensland Rail Train Doors

Throughout the past few months, Maryborough has been working on Drivers cab train doors for a QNGR project. We have been commissioned to make various components and assemblies for a number of Train Car Sets for Bombardier/Queensland Rail.

This project utilized a number of different stations, so we thought you’d like a behind the scenes look at the process. As part of  that, scroll down to see a small gallery of images from the workshop.

Firstly, the material comes into GMG from our suppliers and from there we laser cut, finish, press and form the doors. For this project, there are four types of doors and each is made to very specific designs.

From there, the doors are machined and fabricated. All welding is to BSEN 15085 – Welding of Railway Vehicles and Components specifications. We ensure this is maintained to the highest level through weld and the other Quality Assurance inspections.

After the doors have passed the inspections, they move on to be painted. Prior to painting the doors are bogged, sanded and finished by our dedicated team. Finally, the doors are assembled ready for delivery. In fact, some of the door sets are completed and in service now. Keep an eye out for them!
